Athens, 13 October 208 (MIA) - There are no alternatives for the neighboring country aside from the Prespa Agreement, which is a unique and irreplaceable opportunity for the two nations and for stability in the Balkans, Greek Prime Minister Alexsis Tsipras told the SYRIZA Central Committee.
‘If our neighbors reject it, they have to know and I will say honestly that there are no alternatives for entering the European Union or other international organizations or defense alliances in which Greece participates. Because if they do not change their constitutional name, I want to be clear, Greece is not going to allow it. It will not accept the entry of the neighboring country into NATO, the EU or any other international organization, or any form of defense co-operation with the constitutional name - Republic of Macedonia’, Tsipras said.
Tsipras’s statements at the meeting of SYRIZA Central Committee basically reject the proposals of the Defense Minister and leader of the government's junior coalition party, Panos Kammenos, who at meetings with US officials proposed a new alliance in the Balkans, based on bilateral agreements on defense and security, as an alternative to the name deal, MIA correspondent reports from Athens. lk/15:56
